    You can enable it unoficially, it´s easy:

    I bought and installed this TPM from mwave.com.au for $19 - my thinking was it was a step closer to running Windows 11.

    ASUS TPM-M R2.0 FW5.51 TPM Module BitLocker for ASUS Motherboards SKU# AB84609, Model# 90MC03W0-M0XBN1

    But I guess that was a bit premature; is my understanding correct that this Hero MB with Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz 4.01 GHz will still not be able to run Windows 11?

    Any advice appreciated, such as, is there a suitable, straight swap MB and CPU available?

    Thanks

    Hi The_Snowman

    Scroll down to just before the list and click Z170.

    https://www.asus.com/microsite/mothe...s-Win11-ready/

    While there are certainly better cpu's, my 7700k is still serving me well.

    I went there but I'm not sure what I'm looking for?

    This is from the original purchase specs - ASUS S1151 ATX Maximus VIII Hero Motherboard

    So maybe I'm in the wrong thread as I have no reference to Z170

    Thanks

    I installed on a similar set up with an M8E and 7700K with the tricks and a few updates later it gave me the green screen of death and told me Im done that it doesnt support this platform. They did something to disable the hacks.

    Running fine on a R6EE and 10980 XE dev channel

    Windows 11 installs and runs just fine on unsupported CPU's, I tried it on my Asus Z170-A with the same CPU. Now I don't know if MS will later decide to block such CPU's, but if you know your Windows key, you can download and clean install either OS at any time. Try Win11, don't like it for any reason, go back to Win10:
    Official Windows 11 download: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows11
    Official Windows 10 download: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10
    You need a USB stick with at least 8 GB. You should try Windows 11 before getting new hardware.
